About Sarah

I CAN NO LONGER TAKE NEW CLIENTS, I’M VERY SORRY BUT I AM JUST TOO BUSY if you are a regular client or have booked me previously I will do my best to accommodate you and your beautiful pets!

Hi! My name is Sarah, and I’m taking some time off from my veterinary degree to recharge and cuddle as many pets as much as I can!

I have extensive experience with handling just about all species and breeds, even having done placement at the Australian Reptile Park where I fed chameleons, cuddled and cleaned up after snakes, got aquanted with some very sweet crocodiles, and became good friends with the resident redtail black cockatoo ‘Blue’

My own pets include 3 beautiful rabbits, Marcy, Peter and Pablo,two of whom are pictured on my profile. I grew up on a bush land block in central Victoria and often go back there to see my mum and our many family pets, ducks, chickens, guinea pigs, parrots, and of course the dog and cat. Over the years we also owned emus, lizards, goats and sheep, and there were always native animals in need finding their way into our care, this experience was definitely what made me want to be a vet, I just loved to see animals heal and get back to living their happy lives!

apart from animals, I love music, sketching, and getting out the sewing machine now and then, pretty much anything creative, I’ll have a go!

I take my veterinary oath very seriously and promise to take the best possible care of your animals and love them as my own.

It was great having Sarah looking after Macy and Shadow when I was overseas for 4 weeks. Macy has some medical issues and it was a great comfort having a very knowledgeable vet student caring for her. Both dogs really like her and greeted her enthusiastically when she came for a follow-up visit recently. They also enjoyed a break in their normal routine with two nights away in the country with Sarah. Highly recommend Sarah, especially if you have a pet that needs extra care (like Macy) or is "attention seeking" and demanding (like Shadow!)

I cannot praise Sarah highly enough.

Having two working dogs, one mid aged and the other a hyperactive pup, Sarah certainly had her job cut out for her with my two boys.

Sarah's calm demeanor and patient attitude certainly paid off with winning over everyone.

Receiving photos of my dogs on their walks with Sarah daily always brought a smile to my face, and eased my mind.

Also, young Max's behaviour has improved remarkably. Thank you Sarah.

I recommend Sarah wholeheartedly and without hesitation...

So lucky to have found her.
